Good Book Gift Ideas

Giving/Getting books is a great gift. This weekend was so inspiring for making more things...as if I didn't have enough ideas already! I just felt really inspired to keep making things. I go in stages with my stuff. Sometimes I just get to discouraged and insecure about my work so this weekend was a nice boost as I sold a good deal of my stuff. I just want to make more and more now! So here are some books that would be great gifts.


Plush You!: Lovable Misfit Toys to Sew and Stuff of course!

Zakka Sewing: 25 Japanese Projects for the Household (Stc Craft)

Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts I need this.

Inspiration at it's finest! Gee's Bend: The Architecture of the Quilt


For some reason I think my mom is gonna get me this: Cupcake Calendar 2009 Daily Boxed Calendar (Calendar)

I just read about this one and think it sounds delicious! Baked: New Frontiers in Baking

One year someone stole a cookbook of mine on Christmas! I was so sad. I left it on my stoop for 2 seconds and when I got back it was gone. I miss this so...Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone

Business stuff:

I have been hearing a lot about this book. I just picked it up from the library but so far I don't see it applying to my life too much...I don't hate my job so perhaps that's why? How to Be Useful: A Beginner's Guide to Not Hating Work

With all the people loosing their jobs perhaps there will be an influx of people making the plunge to start their own businesses. If you are a man or a woman, this book is for you! The Boss of You: Everything A Woman Needs to Know to Start, Run, and Maintain Her Own Business

Michelle Goodman will be teaching a class in the upcoming year for GBA. I can't wait to hear what she has to share! My So-Called Freelance Life: How to Survive and Thrive as a Creative Professional for Hire

More ideas coming soon!
